(CNN) -- As Frank Sinatra celebrates his 82nd birthday, the chairman of the board has never been more cutting-edge. The Sinatra legend is thriving on the Internet.

With family-supported sites and multiple fan sites, old blue eyes is wired.

Sinatra Center
If you send a birthday greeting to ol' blue eyes, the site promises it will be personally delivered to the singer on December 12.   

The Sinatra family Web site is lovingly maintained by daughter Nancy. The high-tech site changes almost daily, and offers fascinating glimpes into the Sinatra family. From the Thanksgiving family menu to birthday festivities, and Christmas wishes, it's all about Sinatra.

Editorial comments abound, and news published about the family is either supported or strongly refuted.

At the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center home page, users can find out about charitable work done by the family. The site is sanctioned by Frank and wife Barbara. Although it lacks high-tech glitz, it encourages fans to get involved with some of the Sinatras' causes.

"There's alot of ways in which supporters and fans can participate with Barbara and Frank," says Sinatra spokeswoman Susan Reynolds.

True devotees will want to subscribe to the Frank Sinatra email list. Fans can receive daily messages from other members sharing their thoughts about ol' blue eyes.
